4 x 4 Friday - Houses!


Here's my 4 x 4 this week, the theme is Houses. I have been doing quite a few of these lately, but as they're not finished I haven't photographed them yet. I bought Angela Cartwright's "In This House" several months ago and was immediately inspired to get up and have a go. I do really like the one's that I've done already, so when this challenge came up I decided to 'trim' the corners off my 4 x 4 and make a miniature version - although I confess I'm not entirely sure about this one :o( Whenever I see this kind of collage work done by others, I always swoon and marvel at the simplicity of it, but whenever I try it, it just looks like a bunch of papers stuck down - I can't seem to make my collage 'flow', so if anyone can offer me a simple tutorial, I promise I'd be a most willing and grateful pupil!!! :o)
Thanks for popping in! :o)

  7. This is a beautiful little house! It does NOT look like "a bunch of papers stuck down"! I absolutely love the white heart shaped flourishes around the front door!

  9. I genuinely have no idea what you're worried about...your collaging is fab! Amazing isn't it that we often can't see in our own work what others see in it!!
